All counties in Kansas allowing same-sex marriage licenses, but state not yet allowing name changes, joint tax returns

This is where the real rub is going to be. Who gets tax benefits? Can a state treat some couplings and couplings with children different from other couplings? Of course the "no income tax" crowd has the easiest solution, though not the best. Will be interesting if the states choose this as their next battle.

Kansas representative faces hearing over 'racist' remarks

I wonder if the legislature will take into account the shooting yesterday in SC. Granted they aren't related, but maybe common sense dictates to leave this one alone and move on to the big issues.

Kansas House approves new tax plan after governor's plea

It's the principle of the thing. Those d@#% job creators didn't keep their end of the bargain. They promised a free pony, or something like that. It just occurred to me that this is consistent with Kansas history. Poor Coronado searched in vain for El Dorado. The GOP still hasn't managed to pave the roads in gold.

Kansas House approves new tax plan after governor's plea

I just realized that guy's name is Henchman. Bet he had a rough time in middle school.

Kansas House approves new tax plan after governor's plea

"Nationally, Kansas is not the model any state is looking to follow right now," said Joseph Henchman, a vice president at the Washington-based Tax Foundation. "What have you gained if you've cut taxes and the state becomes insolvent?"
National Democratic bumper sticker "Kansas is not the model for any state." Or "Come to Kansas. See the GOP endgame."

Kansas House soundly rejects plan to avert steep budget cuts

90 days to work on the Kobach, NRA, ALEC and Right to Life agendas. No time left to actually come up with a budget and govern. They should pass a law that the legislature cannot act on any other legislation unless and until it passes the annual budget which is signed by the governor.

House offers 'trailer' bill; process may be dicey

If it's this complicated, you know that it's bad. They are trying to remove all the fingerprints.

Kobach sees filing election cases soon under new Kansas law

We should use Kobach against the rest of the GOP. If this "expert" can't find any real voter fraud, especially among Democratic voters, then there is none to be found. Just like with the disastrous tax cuts - give them enough rope to hang themselves. It will be painful, but let's go all out to have Kansas be the model of the GOP utopia.

Kansas Senate approves largest tax increase in state history; House will consider it Monday

Maybe you should try to go through life without spending anything since you think spenders (consumers) are more worthy of being taxed than high earners.

Kansas Senate approves largest tax increase in state history; House will consider it Monday

This was the same plan that would have passed on day one. Everyone knew that sales taxes would go up and effectively middle income income taxes by reducing deductions. Now the voucher thing was a last minute gift to whom?
